    Have you used Seachem Flourish?

    I haven't used it in fw or salt, sorry. But you saw results with the Chaeto because yes, you are adding nutrients. But what else is in there? I'm not sure
  2. They can be quite a pain, but are so cute! My friend had dwarfs and always had to have a lot of bbs cultures going, but they had baby ponies like crazy!
  3. She is so cute! I'm glad the tank sitter and vacation went well, that's always a stressful time. Haha I'm surprised your hubby didn't have you move the bbs off the counter sooner!
  4. Oh wow that Bubblebath Unicorn is a beauty! 😍It's going to look great in the tank, which always looks amazing btw.

    Ommeh's 3.5 Gallon Pico Tank - #overengineer

    That plumbing and electrical is more organized than my entire life πŸ˜… Glad the tank is finally wet! Next comes the best part

    10 Gallon Reef Tank

    If several people on here can make amazing reefs out of gallon or 3 gallon tanks, you can do a 10 gallon easy ? I also like keeping my tanks very simple. Thanks Lula for the tag. You can check out my thread or TOTM article (which is easier to read) for the list of equipment and livestock. But essentially, I just had a HOB filter, light, powerhead, and a heater if needed. Check out other 10g threads and TOTM articles for inspiration and design!

    ID of macro

    In the first few pics it almost looks like an NPS coral. The last pic looks more like a macro, probably Halymenia if it's smooth/slimey
  9. Get well soon ponies! Good thing you have a vigilant eye Dawn! Change can be exciting too, looking forward to see what you'll do with a different setup
  10. Following along ? It's good to plan, even if those plans end up changing a lot! Padina usually like med-high light, but as Subsea said it's also a slow grower. That's not a problem for you since it's just for looks. If you ever get the blue scroll though, just a heads up it needs intense lighting to get that blue sheen (which sounds like something you don't want for your NPS). Live-plants.com (Gulf Coast Ecosystems) is still my favorite place to buy macros. I think they just moved or renovated their facility, but they usually have a good amount of macro in stock even during the off season. I may have missed it, but how many gallons is the tank?

    Filter feeding sea cucmbers?

    I did, that was years ago and probably not the best decision on my part. But it also depends on the species and tank care. The little yellow ones would be fine with good feeding and water quality. The bigger ones might be difficult in a 10g. Unless it's hooked up to a larger system. They just need a lot of food, and variety is better

    Yoshii's 5.5g Macro Reef

    The potters were so cute and tiny! They all looked really healthy too. I was looking to see if they had any nano-sized fish, but they didn't, just damsels and some SA clowns. I might have to start a tank at work, although offices are being moved so it might be a awhile. But I want to get a small pick/nano going at home. I might either go the fancy planted Betta route, or the limu (macro) route. I went to some tide pools last week and saw so many awesome macros! It seems they only have regulations on the macros commonly used for food, like Gracilaria and Asparagopsis. You collect them as long as you don't take the holdfast or take ones that are reproductive. For other macro, I don't think anyone cares, but if I collect those I'll just follow those guidelines to be safe.

    Yoshii's 5.5g Macro Reef

    Life updates and Hawaii LFS Visit! My Master's defense was great, actually a lot less stressful than I thought it would be ? I can now put a M.S. on my email signature lol Aloha from Hawai'i Moved 2 days after my defense! I'm in Honolulu on O'ahu. I've been busy running around doing paperwork, DMV stuff, and work, but I got a nice beachy pic for you guys I recently moved to my new place (I had been staying in a temp place while visiting apts in person) and it's so beautiful! I have a beautiful view of the mountains and Pearl Harbor. It's also very close to a LFS. I couldn't keep out of a fish store for long haha Unfortunately they didn't really have an assortment of nano tank options available, just the Fluval 2/5g tanks, which I don't really like that much. But this makes sense since it's illegal to keep coral in Hawaii (except things like zoas and anemones). So people just have fish and some inverts. I don't even think you have have live rock, you have to get dry rock and seed it with bacteria. The store I went too seemed pretty nice, they had a lot of fish, both saltwater and freshwater. The prices were of course much different than the mainland. Check out the prices of these Green Chromis vs any of the Hawaiian fish. Potter's Angel for $26 anyone? ? And most of the tangs and angels were so small and cute! Sizes I rarely saw in California.

    Budget 5 gallon pico *Six Year anniversary*

    Congrats on six years! That is quite an accomplishment, especially for a pico! Can you share more about the system's history?
